Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Has a Bunch of New Aliens

If you were worried about Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker only focusing on its sexy human cast then relax; we're getting a bunch of aliens too. During Star Wars Celebration Chicago, J.J. Abrams, and the cast unveiled a number of new alien characters that would be appearing in the trilogy's final film. It's always neat seeing alien characters in Star Wars, especially since they're made with props and makeup. Crazy.

The only named alien is Klaw, a creature that members of The Resistance are apparently familiar with, thanks to Chewbacca. It will be interesting to see how Klaw factors into the story and we can expect the character to offer some comic relief, though fans might not want too much of that if The Last Jedi is anything to go by.

We also get two more alien characters, though they remain unnamed. It's likely that these two will just be random civilians or unimportant members of The Resistance (until we get a comic or book that focuses on them at least). Yeah, they aren't main characters or anything like that but it's always nice seeing Star Wars' weird side.
